Federal employees and the military won’t get paid. Where it gets interesting is when he gets to decide if the social security recipients get paid or not or if the ghetto rats get their EBT cards plussed up or not

There are precedents and rules. There are very few consequences to a "government shutdown."

-Fed employees aren't paid, but have always been paid retroactively.
-Military gets paid.
-Contractors aren't paid.
-SSI payments get paid, although the SSA staff might get cut, and payments delayed at some point.
-Medicare is paid.
-National parks closed.
-Air traffic controllers are paid, and airports stay open.
That's about it. A government shutdown is a good thing. In fact, it can work to our advantage, since the media hysteria will be exposed for what it is.

I’m not talking about the continuing resolution. I’m talking about the debt ceiling. If that is not raised in late October, early November, then the government cannot borrow any more. It has to pay out of receipts. Which are a little more than half of expenditures.

Think of it like a clipping dear leaders credit card.
